From the time you were born DHA has been a key component for your developing brain and eyes. It continues to support brain and eye function throughout life. As a matter of fact, DHA is a major structural and functional fat found in the brain, and one of the omega-3 fatty acids recommended by the American Heart Association and USDA Dietary Guidelines for good cardiovascular health.
Here are three ways to incorporate DHA into the diet of the man in your life from Elizabeth Somer, MA and R.D.
- Wrap it up for him: Spread one tablespoon of hummus along the center of a Mission Life Balance Whole Wheat Tortilla Wrap, which is fortified with an algal DHA. Then, place a tablespoon of diced red pepper on top. Add a handful of spinach, season with ground black pepper, and a sprinkle of feta cheese. Roll it up and enjoy.
- Make him a healthy dinner: Heat olive oil in a pan and cook two boneless, skinless chicken breasts until they’re cooked through. Cut into small pieces. Meanwhile, cook whole-wheat pasta until al dente. Add two handfuls of fresh spinach and cook until wilted. Drain the pasta and spinach and add it to the pot. Add two cups of Francesco Rinaldi ToBe Healthy Pasta Sauce, which is fortified with an algal DHA. Plate to serve and add ¼ cup of shaved Parmesan. Enjoy!
- Introduce him to a multivitamin with DHA, such as One-A-Day VitaCraves multivitamin gummies with DHA.
